Not Your Moonshiner's Overalls

Placentia, Calif...






I have been wanting to make overall’s that were cut with a narrower leg. No one seems to sell women’s overall’s except on Ebay and they were huge in the legs even in a size small. So, I decided I’d try and make my own.
I used Cindy Taylor Oates pattern which was available to also make a shorts and a capri overall variation. I cut a size small but I still modified the pattern by taking it in another inch from the outside and inside leg seams. The pattern calls for 2 and half yards but I think 2 yards would’ve been enough. I have enough fabric left over for another pair of jeans at this point.

I saw a recent photo of a Russian fashion blogger wearing a leather version of overalls so maybe it could be a fashionista item one day. Anyways, I am quite comfortable with these and I don’t care if they’re trendy.

Material Notes

2 yards of denim, two buckles, 6 dungaree buttons, and two spools of heavy duty thread.

      Thank you! I wanted to show the world work wear can be practical and maybe just a little attractive.

      Thank you. I always envied the fact that these were readily available for men. Now I can use them for gardening or whatever.
